Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

Looks like Florence isn't going to touch us after all (in lieu of continuing to shit all over those poor people in the Carolinas). Current five-day forecast for my area calls for not a single drop of rain. Good thing, too -- when I started taking some of the "emergency ice" out of the freezer this m...

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

I'm just still stuck on "Don't waste eggs." How exactly does he think ovulation works? There's a "release egg now" button on the cervix and the wang pushes it while you're boinking? In all seriousness, "utter cluelessness regarding female anatomy and how it works" seems to be a defining feature amo...

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

I would be genuinely, non-ironically curious to know what "value" this man thinks he has to offer any sane adult woman. He does explain that. You see, women derive their value from being with a man of higher status than they are. So he builds himself up so women can tell their friends what a high s...

And especially, if you're going to reduce human worth to reproductive/genetic potential, it helps not to look like the pre-Photoshop model for Gorzo the Mighty.

Yeah I'm talking about active members in WS groups. Racism on social media has spiked. But that's a feature of social media. It amplifies the most radical voices.
And many of those radical voices are now elected or appointed government officials.

Re: Putin on the Writs

It's pretty weak on a historical scale starting in 1776, sure. Compared to, say, 2012? Not at its weakest, no. I suspect it was at its weakest on Sept 11 '01 at 7 in the morning. There was a local minimum in '06 to maybe '08, and a slow ramp up since then, and a spike in invigoration in aught-15. N...

So, denying the citizenship of Latinos born near the border was only step one.

Jeff's brother isn't leaving until tomorrow morning. I hope that's not cutting things too close; if I had to evacuate from a coastal zone before a no-joke hurricane, I would assume traffic is going to be Atlanta-at-rush-hour levels of bad -- meaning if you are lucky, your car will move about as fast...

As of 30 seconds ago, Jeff's brother's plans have changed to "he's going someplace south." As opposed to inland. His town is being evacuated. Though as I think about it, our apartment might not be an entirely safe evacuation spot for him anyway -- not that I'm worried about the place being destroyed...

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

As of two days ago, Jeff's brother said he plans to stay put rather than evacuate. (FWIW, he's currently living about 15 miles inland, so whatever wind and rain issues he'll have, at least the storm surge shouldn't be an issue.) Weather Channel showed the city where my MIL lived, and a major street ...

Apropos of nothing, the other day when I used a mirror to look at the back of my head (to ensure that my ponytail-barrette wasn't crooked), I realized the end of said ponytail was looking really shaggy: instead of being a more-or-less straight line, it made me think of stalactites hanging from a ca...
